Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

They are all good photos but my favorite is the one of snow covered Bearhat Mountain from the overlook area. Great Job!

Re: Jackson Overlook TH to Reynolds Creek Campsite 8-7-2021

Oh that's too bad about the weather. You made the right choice to skip the backpack. I had a similar thing happen on my Wind River trip this year.

Hi Tibber,

Thanks for posting your report. What weather event cancelled your backpack? It seems like Gunsight lake would have been pretty nice.

It looks like it's getting chilly there. Snow in the mountains and all.

Re: Ole Creek - new trail

I wouldn't want to see the Reynold mountaineer's trail be made into an official trail. Not because it's too dangerous but because it will bring more people (a lot more people) into that area which is for the most part pretty peaceful. I understand your point of view Paul and I'm sympathetic to it, ...

Re: Jungle Rules in the Backcountry?

I do think the backcountry rules have been less followed as the park becomes more crowded and permits harder to get. I'm not sure the enforcement has changed much. Although I have not backpacked in Glacier in 3 years so this might have changed since. I have encountered Rangers on the trail and they ...

Re: Virginia hiker not heard from in nearly a week found dead in Glacier National Park

It could be one of those accidents where she tried to take a selfie and accidentally backed off a cliff. If you're not super careful in cliffy areas that is something that can easily happen.

Jay,

If you try the method Jason described it should work. I just tried it again and it worked.

Re: Corridor Management Plan

They are probably filling up the backcountry parking areas too. So when you show up to start your backpack there's no place to park.

Re: Surprised this hasn't caught on

Speaking of bears, did people see this on the news... Sounds like she kept her food in her tent.

Re: 2021 Season Opening News

I see now that Hidden Lake is closed. Candy asses have taken over the National Park Service. Whatever happened to people being allowed to decide for themselves the risk they want to take? The NPS doesn't forbid backpackers from setting out in bad weather. Nor do they stop people from climbing mount...
